Leonardo DiCaprio Launches Race Car Team with Venturi!

Leonardo DiCaprio has helped launch the new Venturi Grand Prix Formula E Team, which will race in the world’s first fully-electric race series beginning in September 2014.

Formula E is a new FIA Championship using electric single-seater race cars capable of speeds in excess of 225km/h. The series will compete in the heart of 10 of the world’s leading cities including Beijing, Los Angeles and London.

“The future of our planet depends on our ability to embrace fuel-efficient, clean-energy vehicles,” Leo said in a statement. “Venturi Grand Prix has shown tremendous foresight in their decision to create an environmentally friendly racing team, and I am happy to be a part of this effort.”

    This partnership may have started back in May at the Formula One Race in Monaco that Leo attended. Everyone assumed Leo was blowing off the Australian premiere of GG to party. Maybe he was putting this deal together with Venturi!? (I am just trying to give him the benefit of doubt)

    @Black Sharpie

    I thought it was kind of suspect that they did tweet it right after they welcomed Leo to the Formula E. I read the article on their website about entering this race and she isn’t mentioned but who knows….she may have invested or she’s going to be their “eye candy” at the races.

    She can run around the track with a see through shirt showing off her boobs to distract the other drivers! LOL

    @Black sharpie:

    That’s actually a good point but doesn’t he have “people” to do that type of stuff for him?

    Black sharpie Says:

    Too funny! Run around the track with her boobs on display while also making “duck faces”. Lol.
    Seriously though, I don’t think she would promote a team that competes with Leo’s team.

    She wasn’t making excuses for him, she’s just trying to give him the benefit of doubt and wonder maybe if he was also focusing on this project besides wh0ring around in Cannes.

    I guess we’ll have to get frisky in the back seat, environmentally! ;)

    @Black Sharpie: sorry but that excuse to skip his own premiere? I doubt it was THAT important. I understand that fuel efficient cars should get more emphasis but by backing up a race car team? I know that races gave a huge fan base but it still seems a little ‘elite thing’ to support a race car team as his bew project.
    @####: I think Toni’s name was used because of her being Leo’s gf + being German. jmo

    The nuts and bolts of a contract I am sure are taken care of by Leo’s lawyers. I think the deal making is probably done between Leo and the Venturi owner.
    We’ll never really know how the partnership happened and it really doesn’t matter.

    HAHA12 Says:

    Hey you! I saw your other comment in the last thread and I have to agree with everything you were saying regarding awards and the critics, but I’m still hoping for the best…
    Re Paris-It’s 6:40 PM right now there, the premiere should be starting in a few hours no? I hope Leo doesn’t slick his hair back.

    @baby: I absolutely agree. But one not so successful investment ( mobli ) doesn`t mean he is bad at business.

    @HAHA12: Hey! We can only hope for the best, but I’m not going too much….
    re Premier: I think most premiers start between 7-7:30. I am surprised that there haven’t been any tweets yet.
    @baby: I’m surprised he is doing something with electric cars again considering his last venture did terrible. Can anyone say Fisker Karma? Leo really does need to get better business advisors.
    @also…: I agree with you re Formula One racing.
